COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspiré de ce rocher en perdition au large des Îles, Corps Mort est un vin d’orge salin et robuste. Brassé à partir de grains fumés, ayant frayé avec le hareng du «Fumoir d’Antan», il offre une alliance de saveurs riches et sauvages ayant un fort potentiel de vieillissement.
2010 vintage 11.0% abv **Peut contenir des traces de hareng boucané!

Pours rusty orange with a quick gone off-white head. Floral aroma with butterscotch and smoke hints. Oily texture combined with a smooth mouthfeel. You don’t taste the 11%. Sadly, in my opinion, they tried to mix too much things in that beer. The Barley-Rauchust could had been a great combination but... I don’t know. Something missing. Maybe too much balanced!...

Bottle brought in directly from the isles by my sister-in-law; clear copper with small white head; aroma-smoke, caramel, very sweet smell, pepper. Something smelling very similar to southern tier’s Gemini that I still can’t identify; taste-medium sweetness, lightly bitter early on that reappears late after swallowing, mild carbonation and warming feel of alcohol. Fantastic beer.

341ml bottle from trade. Pours a dark brown with an ample off white head. Aroma is dominated by burnt leaves, sweet malts, some hops and mild spice. Taste is smoked malt peaty with some dried fruit. A tad sweet and really odd for the style. Alcohol is a little brutish. An okay smokey barleywine.

341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden-orange with a small white head. Aroma: Complete infection – sour, nasty, organic acids, burnt nuts, minerals, hard to believe that a beer this strong could be infected...bravo, a-holes! Palate: Medium-full body, spunky but somewhat sparse effervescence, syrupy. Flav.: Like concentrated pineapple and passion fruit juices, very fruit, still detect the infection notes, brutal; sweet with fair bitterness and a strangely abrupt, mineral finish with some of the residual tropical fruits.

WTF? I’m done with this brewery. A $6+ drain pour.

First of two barleywines rated tonight. This one is double the price of the other though (Simple Malt Vin d’Orge). Notched bottom label indicating it was bottled on September 2009. Pours a beautiful clear and bright amber-orange with big bubble carbonation. The frothy off-white head is decent size, but goes down quicker than average, leaving some patchy lacing. Aromas of fruits (dark mostly with some oranges), sweet malt, brown sugar, toffee and smoke. Yes, they say this beer might contain "smoked herring". The carbonation balances itself out after a while. Soft textured and smooth mouthfeel. Just like the nose, the taste is pretty complex as well, but well-balanced, finding the same things. Grainy, fruity, with no alcohol burn, but burnt wood in the aftertaste. Kind of a nice mix between a rauchbier and a barleywine.

RBSB 2010 Grand Tasting. Softly smokey aroma. Earthy/dryish malts backed by sweet smoke and a kiss of peat as well. Rich with a very faint fruitiness. A little bit of dark malt contributes to a touch of cocoa and more sweetness. Rich and fairly savoury. A kiss of salt and leather. Damn nice stuff.

Bottle shared by Rastacouere @RBSG. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is decidedly smokey with additional notes of juicy fruits, earthy bitterness and grass. The flavor has more smoke, malty sweetness, char, apricot fruitiness and green grass. The finish had mild bitterness and was slightly salty. This was interesting and hard to settle on, but I am grateful for the opportunity to try this.
